The BBA have published a letter, which had been sent by the BBA Chairman to the Chancellor of the Exchequer which outlined proposals to stimulate recovery in the private sector. The Chairman outlines the progress of a Task Force announced in the UK Government's green paper on business finance. The aim of the Task Force is to identify barriers to businesses securing finance and to make suggestions on how these issues may be addressed. This input will be put to the UK Government to aid in forming further development policy in the area.
